What is the Proper Use of Tramacet

Proper Use of Tramacet

The Tramacet tablet can be taken as needed with or without any food, but it can be taken with food if the tablet upsets the stomach. This medication is meant only to be used orally. If your physician prescribes the effervescent tablet, this needs to be put in a glass of water and dissolved before you drink the medicine.

Usually, the dose for Tramacet is two tablets taken every six hours to control pain, with eight being the maximum number of tablets a patient can take in one 24 hour period.

Your physician may change this recommended dosage based on your weight, health or physical condition.

If the amount of Tramacet prescribed by your doctor is different from the standard recommended dose, follow your physicianís prescription. Also, do not take more of this medication than prescribed by your physician, or for a longer amount of time than prescribed, because this can lead to addiction or possible overdose.

The dosage for people with severe kidney problems, meaning patients whose levels of creatinine phosphate cleared from the blood plasma are less than 30 millilitres per minute, is usually a maximum dose of four tablets per 24 hour period, with two tablets taken every 12 hours instead of every four to six hours.

Tramacet can be taken on a dialysis day, since the amount of tramadol removed by hemodialysis is less than seven percent. Patients suffering from severe liver problems should not take this medication.

Do not take more than two Tramacet tablets at any one time. Also, do not take more than eight tablets in one 24 hour period. Too much paracetamol can cause kidney and liver damage.

The maximum possible dosage of paracetamol in one 24 hour period is 4,000 milligrams. To make sure you are not ingesting more than 4,000 milligrams a day, pay attention to all medications you take, both prescribed and over-the-counter drugs. Many over-the-counter medications, such as cold and flu remedies, contain paracetamol.

Do not stop taking this medication all at once. Because of potential withdrawal symptoms, the use of Tramacet should be stopped over a period of time, with the supervision of a doctor. Your physician may even prescribe smaller doses over a period of time.

Withdrawal symptoms for Tramacet can include tremors, nausea, goose bumps, hallucinations, chills, anxiety, insomnia, diarrhea, shakiness and sweating. Rarer withdrawal symptoms reported with the usage of Tramacet include severe anxiety, panic attacks and tingling or burning sensations on the skin.

Because Tramacet contains the opioid tramadol, it can be a cause for both addiction and dependence. There is a difference between the two. An addiction is usually the result for someone who uses the drug for recreational purposes, usually in conjunction with other mind-altering drugs, and not to control pain.

Symptoms of an addicted person include visiting multiple doctors for multiple prescriptions, visiting the emergency room regularly in search of extra prescriptions, refusing drug testing, visiting a doctor near the end of visiting hours, a habit of prescription tampering and a reluctance to allow medical files to be shared among a number of healthcare professionals.

Dependence on Tramacet is indicated by a buildup of tolerance for the medication. In other words, over time the same amount of the medication no longer seems to control the pain as well.

The temptation for the patient is to take more of this medication to receive the same amount of pain control. The longer the patient takes Tramacet, the more likely they can experience dependence. In the case of both dependence and addiction, this medication needs to be slowly reduced in the patientís body to avoid withdrawal symptoms.

If your physician decides that you need to take regular doses of Tramacet, follow your healthcare providerís instructions. If you happen to miss the time you should take your next dose, then take it as soon as possible, unless it is almost time for your next dose. Do not double up on Tramacet doses. Instead, skip the missed dose and take your next scheduled dose instead.
